Cormac Glynn has joined Band Hatton Button solicitors as a Senior Associate from Cocks Lloyd Solicitors where he was previously Head of Commercial Property.
Glynn joins the Coventry firm with extensive experience of acting on six and seven-figure property deals for corporate occupiers and high street banks through to landowners and developers.
His arrival takes Band Hatton Button’s commercial property department to 20 strong, with the department seeing an 8 per cent increase in caseloads in the last year.
Glynn is also the first new recruit into the firm since Band Hatton Button moved into new 11,500 square foot premises at Earlsdon Park on Butts Road.
He said: “Band Hatton Button is in the thick of a lot of major property deals across Coventry, Warwickshire and the wider Midlands region. The firm is going in the right commercial direction and I want to be part of that growth. This growth is evidenced by their new state of the art offices and for me joining them was too good an opportunity to turn down. My initial impressions are very good, and it is clear there is a culture of delivering an excellent service to clients, with a human touch.”
“The commercial property market is usually a good indicator of how the business community is performing and despite the current political landscape clients are transacting property – particularly in Coventry and Warwickshire where there’s a healthy mix of different sectors doing deals. Day to day there is stable occupier and investor appetite – when the Brexit pathway finally becomes clear there will be opportunities for well-funded buyers. In particular, the development sphere is buoyant with many landowning clients opting to get land under contract with housebuilders and promoters.
“Coventry is an attractive place to invest, there is a sense of this strategically well-located City being on an upward curve. The city and surrounding area have a longstanding association with manufacturing, industry and commerce. In addition, there are two cracking universities and City of Culture is on the horizon. I’m looking forward to helping the team to grow in line with demand across the region.”
Daniel Blood, Head of Commercial Property at Band Hatton Button, added: “Hiring somebody of Cormac’s calibre is real coup for us as a firm – he has a loyal client base and is extremely well connected, which leaves us well-placed to deliver another strong year of performance.
“Despite Brexit uncertainty the commercial property department continues to grow, and Cormac’s appointment will assist us with our growth aspirations and also to plan for succession in the future. The department is well placed to continue to assist existing and new clients.”
